Loads of stuff I would like to do if I had the time?.
On the Carp front one burning ambition is to catch a real biggie from the Seine before they all get stolen! There are some monster Barbel and Chub swimming about over here as well so one of them would be nice.
When I come back to the UK I will keep plugging away after Perch. I was lucky enough to catch some good ones last year so I hope to keep that up if I can. I would also LOVE to catch a big Roach?.I have put in quite a bit of time for them in the past without really being rewarded so I hope this year will be the one. I will also try and spend at least a week or so after Bream and I would like to put some time in after Pike which I really miss. A pound plus Dace would be great or a big Grayling?..
Hi Pete, no unfortunatly I did not. Really frustrating, I humped all my tackle over but then could not get away to fish! I hope to be coming back towads the end of January and I really want to try and spend at least one day there. Do you know if the Roach shoal there during the winter....are they likly to have moved when I get back ? Did you manage any trips over xmas ?
Read "strange but true" to see how goose and mtself got on.
As far as I know the roach do stay around there in large numbers along with some nice big bream.
I'm hopping the water is as it should be when I go next week and I may give my fav swim just below the weir a go, or try stalking for the chub in the stream that runs beside it.
I would gladly pay anything to fish the Avon if it was an easily accessible river for me. But I can't justify the cost of club memberships while I also have tickets to fish the Wye, Severn and Bristol Avon and the journey is a 200 mile round trip. Perhaps when I get fed up (?) of fishing those three I will put some time in on the Hants Avon.
